FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders is back with the team after being hospitalized over the weekend following a car accident.
Saunders, a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma, was released from the hospital Sunday morning. He was involved in a single-car accident on his way to the team's practice facility early Friday morning.
According to an incident report by the Florham Park Police Dept., Saunders experienced an unspecified "medical event" as he made a left turn onto Park Ave. — less than a minute from the facility. His car struck a curb and stopped in "high grass."
Saunders was working with trainers at the start of practice Monday, and the team says he will be eased back. He's expected to address the media either Tuesday or Wednesday.
